The Answer

Dear Ron,

Ultimately you’d have to look at the actual loan document. But since the cosigner is guaranteeing to repay the loan if the student did not I would have to imagine that if money was lent, the cosigner would have to repay it.

Please update me on your progress by posting updates here in the comments section of your question. I’m very interested in how this works out for you.

Big Hug!

      If you are permanently disabled you may be able to eliminate your shared liability for the loans but not the underlying loans themselves. See the TPD Process documentation.
